Jacksonville-based Corner Lot and Hampton Golf paid $4,886,856 on Jan. 5 for the Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club golf course and are partnering in a yearlong project to redesign and revamp it.
The golf course, clubhouse and other associated golf club amenities were sold by Hodges Blvd. Development Group Inc.
Corner Lot CEO Andy Allen did not release the sale price when the purchase was announced Jan. 6.
The deed was posted Jan. 17 on the Duval County Clerk of Courts site.
The Glen Kernan Homeowners’ Association Inc. also is listed as part of the purchasing group. The HOA is on the deed for quitclaim purposes for any interest it may have in the property.
No mortgage information has been filed.
The course is closed and Allen expects to reopen it in January 2025.
The community is at northeast Kernan and Butler boulevards.
Glen Kernan will remain a private golf club upon the project’s completion. Membership will be open to the residents of Glen Kernan and will be offered to those outside the community by invitation only.
The Glen Kernan course redesign will be handled by Hampton Golf under the PGA Tour professional and area resident Jim Furyk and his design team, according to a Corner Lot release on Jan. 6.
Furyk has won 17 times on the PGA Tour including the 2010 FedEX Cup. He won the 2003 U.S. Open.
Furyk is a longtime member of Glen Kernan, according to Golfweek.com. He is currently working with Hampton Golf on building the Glynlea Country Club at Wylder in Port St. Lucie.
Winner of the 2023 Players and the Open Championship Cameron Smith is also an investor, according to Golfweek.com. Smith is a member of the LIV Golf Tour.
